Interlocking is a great way to turn your home into a piece of art. The natural beauty of stone strategically placed, whether for a path or addition to your home, will bring an air of elegance to the entire property.
There are many different types of stones that can be used for interlocking, each having different ranges of quality. It is important to get some solid, durable stones that can stand up to the toughest of punishments, especially when they have to face a Toronto winter.
That being said, not everyone works with the same budget; but regardless of budget, everyone still deserves access to durable stone for their interlocking Toronto project.
We are going to introduce you to 4 types of paver stones that we think are highly durable, and thus, ideal for Toronto homeowners. With the 4 we chose, we are also going to go through 4 price ranges (low, mid-low, mid-high, and high) so you can find the best stones for your interlocking, regardless of your budget.
Low Range – Unilock Hollandstone
When you are on a budget, the Unilock Hollandstone is both cost-effective and incredibly durable.
It comes in a rectangular classic shape and is available in a variety of colours to choose from. It fits in great when installed in walkways, driveways or commercial areas. The laying pattern is rather simple when compared to other stones, and it is fairly easy to have installed, making it a popular choice when it comes to interlocking projects.
Mid to Low Range – Unilock Brussels Block
For those looking to save some money, but still want a luxurious look for their interlocking, the Unilock Brussels Block is the original tumbled paver.
These stones have been tumbled in a drum which creates a unique and antique look that brings a touch of elegance to any property it is used in. The design of the stone was made to emulate quarried stone, giving them an overall natural feel. They come in standard, half stone, and extra-large sizes, so they are good for just about any interlocking project you have in mind.
They are also available in many different colours so they mend with a variety of different spaces. The Brussels Block stone is a favoured choice for a rustic driveway, addition, or walkway.
Mid to High Range – Unilock Beacon Hill
Now we are getting to the more pricey stones with the Unilock Beacon Hill interlocking stone.
This stone was modelled after natural cut flagstone, and it blends colours and textures that produce a very quaint feeling. Due to the subtle texture of the stones, you could comfortably walk on them with your bare feet, making your patio, walkway, or driveway feel even more inviting.
The Unilock Beacon Hill stones are sold in bundles that include an assortment of three large sizes so when they are placed they look natural. This stone is a popular choice for patios, pool decks and walkways.
High Range – Unilock Umbriano
If you want an interlocking stone of the highest quality, the Unilock Umbriano is a premium choice. While it is the most expensive stone on this list, you do get a lot of value in return.
The Umbriano has a zero bevel edge and a granite-like appearance, giving it a very sleek and modern aesthetic. It has a mottled surface with rich colours and granite particles throughout the design, which creates a very unique and natural look on the facade of these stones. It also contains a coating which makes it a non-slip, and because of this, it is a very popular choice for pool decks. The coating on the surface also protects the stone from any stains.
With the high-quality material used and the stain-proof surface, you can be assured that these rocks will last for many, many years to come. The Umbriano stone is typically used in driveways, outdoor dining areas and high traffic commercial projects.
Choosing the right stone for your interlocking Toronto project comes down to your price range. The more you invest, the better stone you will get. However, all of the stones on this list have outstanding qualities that set them above the rest and you can not go wrong with any of them. No matter your budget, you can find an interlocking stone that will suit your needs.
